'Produce 101' PD says he constantly pleaded the trainees to not read negative feedback

With Mnet 'Produce 101' Season 2 wrapping up successfully, PD Ahn Joon Young recently sat down with Sports World for an exclusive interview.

"We were always thrown under the bus the entire time the program aired. There were even times when life-threatening comments were made, but I feel like that was clear evidence the show was receiving much attention from the masses," PD Ahn Joon Young explained.

"I don't get upset when I receive hateful comments but I felt really bad when such despiteful words were geared towards the trainees. So every time that happened, I would warn the trainees 'don't read negative feedback, but only read the positive ones.'"
